Below average pay. Terribly organized. Everyone is learning trial by fire including supervisors.

    I have been working at Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of experience to be gained from working at SCMPD. Neither you are new to policing or a seasoned officer not many officers can say they have the same amount of experience as from SCMPD.

    Cons

    There is no leadership. Corruption has taken over the command staff all the way down. The only real cops are those without any rank because only those wrapped up in the corruption get the promotion.

    Advice to Management
